Proof is in the Pictures XR650R vs. KTM450MXC HA!!

7 posts in this topic

After recently switching from KTM to an XR650R, I am kicking A$$ and taking names on the trail. I have owned about 7 KTM's in the last 10 years (2-strokes, 4-strokes and even an LC4). I loved almost all of them. However, I really feel at home with my XR650R.. I feel faster and more confident. The geometery feels better than my last KTM (04 EXC450) and the power unreal. Granted KTM makes a fine product but after extensively modifying my pig it is GREAT.. Again using the right mods.

Anyhow.. The pics.. As you can see I am clearly at the top of the mountain ahead of my buddies 05 KTM 450EXC which he swears by. OK my bike pulled up without a problem.. He.. well had problems. This was consistant on all the hill climbs.. We are evenly matched riders on the KTM's but I feel I pulled away a little with the Honda. . I only hope he does not read this. He gets me in the Whoops.. but only in the whoops. AND NOW I ADDED the BD Estart so no advantage there..

I agree, nothing beats a 650r when climbing hills. I have a 06 525 and a 00 650R and the difference on the hills is amazing.
